AWS has waived offload fees when moving to another cloud platform

Amazon Web Services said it is eliminating the data offload fees it charged customers who move from its cloud services to other platforms.

AWS now allows you to offload up to 100GB of data per month from all of its cloud platforms for free. This includes traffic from Amazon EC2, Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Application Load Balancer, and other services, and another terabyte can be offloaded from Amazon CloudFront. However, AWS’s largest customers lack this.

To take advantage of the offer of free data unloading, you need to contact a technical support employee and complete an application. After its approval, the client will receive a certain number of credits that are valid for 60 days. During this time, the client must complete the unloading.

“We are not asking you to close your account or change your relationship with AWS in any way. However, we will, of course, conduct an additional check if the same AWS account applies for free data offloading multiple times,” the company clarifies.

Last month, Google announced that it would stop charging Google Cloud customers to transfer their data to another cloud provider or to an on-premises data center. The process for Google customers is the same as for AWS customers: apply and upload data within 60 days of approval. If this period expires, you will have to submit a new request.
